  • Really? He took a program that had 17 losing seasons out of the previous 19 years. and has winning season 7 of the last 8 years. both Tennessee and Vanderbilt or foolishly pic to finish above Missouri this year have had more losing seasons and winning seasons in the last 8 years. he will surpass every coach that has ever coached in Missouri before he is done. and he has more character than Bobby patrino Rich Rodriguez or Lane Kiffin.

    • I meant to say that Tennessee and Vanderbilt have had more losing seasons than winning seasons in the last 8 years. and Missouri will finish ahead of both of them and possibly one more as they challenge for at least 3rd place in the East if not better. Remember you heard it here first from me and nobody else. if 5 bad years doesn’t make Tennessee a bottom feeder then one bad you’re certainly doesn’t make Missouri a bottom feeder

      • Missouri won’t come close to competing for 3rd in the east. That is an absolute joke. Your big three will be the same in Georgia, Florida, and South Carolina. And Vanderbilt will more than likely come out at 4th again. Mizzou will be lucky to finish ahead of Tennessee again
